Ian, a specialist in spatial orientation, arrives at a Lisbon clinic for the visually impaired to teach blind patients navigational skills. Blind himself, he teaches his students to move around without using their white canes, encouraging them to risk the unknown through the use of a complex network of sound cues. In the way he moves, sits, falls down, Edward Hogg gives an outstanding performance of a blind man and creates a person who lives in his own space, somewhere in the crossing of reality and imagination. The film is set against a sunny and lyrical background and depends greatly on the use of sound which, apart from its aesthetic role, forms an integral part of the theme.
